I was recently invited to present at the monthly Thursday afternoon meeting of the KM Forum, on topics relating to Mindmapping, and with a specific twist towards Knowledge Management and Innovation Management.
If you are in the Boston area, I would recommend sitting in on these sessions - the KM Forum is an organization of practitioners and thought-leaders in Knowledge Management that has been operating in the Boston area for some time now. Great people (saw some old friends), and really interesting discussions come about.
I decided to take my "hyper keynote" style a step further, and created a 130 slide deck, which ended up at about a 45 minute presentation. I've posted it via slideshare.net, and embedded it below. It holds together fairly well without voiceover, but I'll be working on an alternative version to set some more of the context.
The purpose overall of the presentation was to provide a wide view of the types of tools and methodologies that an individual could use, that teams could use, and that organizations as a whole could use. Borrowed from my background in semantic/conceptual search and auto-classification, business process analysis, mindmapping, brainstorming and winnowing techniques, visualization techniques, and innovation from a number of angles. It was a blast for me - and we had some nice discussion afterwards.
Would love any feedback based on the slide deck as it stands, and the experiences of people using any of these tools and techniques. This is an ongoing area of interest for me, and am always looking for deeper, richer information on what others are doing. Luckily, in the 40+ podcasts I've done over the last year, and my experiences of the last 13 years or so, I had quite a fountain of knowledge to pull from, which made the presentation actually quite easy to pull together.
Let's discuss - and share how you're solving problems, and creating new products/services/opportunities within your organization.
